When I was in high school, I had to choose a foreign language to study for two years. After much consideration, I decided I wanted to learn French. After only a few weeks of classes, I fell in love with the French language. I practiced new words daily. Because my teacher thought I spoke the language so well, she recommended I stay with a family located in rural France for two weeks during the summer of my junior year in high school. My teacher also encouraged me to enter a French-speaking competition at a local college. On this blog, I hope you will discover the benefits of learning a second language. Enjoy!
